Château de la Mulonnière
A ‘haute couture’ approach to Anjou
Château de la Mulonnière is located 25 km from Angers in Beaulieu-sur-Layon, a village renowned for its Coteaux du Layon. Bordered by the Layon river on one side and vineyards on the other, this superb early 20th-century property is a perfect illustration of the ‘dolce vita’ lifestyle in Anjou. The Saget family fell in love with the estate and realised the outstanding potential of its soils. They bought Château de la Mulonnière in 2003. Vineyards and soils on the estate are farmed sustainably in order to protect the soils and reproduce their beautiful intrinsic harmony in the wines. Most of the grapes are harvested by hand so that strict multiple vineyard picks can select the finest fruit and single out clusters affected by noble rot, particularly for the Coteaux du Layon wines. Anjou is home to a rich mosaic of outstanding, schist-dominant terroirs where one of the top grape varieties thrives – Chenin blanc. All of Château de la Mulonnière’s white wines – Savennières, Coteaux du Layon, Anjou blanc and Quarts de Chaume – are made from the varietal. The Château also produces an Anjou Villages and two Crémant de Loire.
